Owner Mike Maynard talks rat removal with Fox 13 News. An informative look inside commercial and residential rat problems.
Friends, only 2 rats can create over 1500 more rats in a year. JUST those two rats. Their offspring can create even more!
So if you see rats around your home or business, nip that problem in the bud now!
What was that?
That little squeaky, scratching noise in your wall? Or overhead in your ceiling or attic? The kind of noise that gives you the creeps and keeps you from sleeping at night? If you are hearing these noises in the evening and night time hours, then you more than likely have a rat in your home. And just like potato chips, you can never have just one rat!
With all the new building and construction going on, rats are a common problem in the Collierville TN area. Rats do not want to be noticed, so when their habitat is destroyed they will look for a new one in your home. Once you have seen a rat in your home, then the dark, quiet areas that rats make their home in are probably already occupied by... you guessed it. Other rats!
Did you know that just two rats can create over 1500 rats in just one year? A female rat can go into heat again just days after giving birth. This is how rat infestations can begin unless you put a stop to it immediately!
At Apex Wildlife Control, we solve your rat problems with trapping and exclusion. Exclusion is the word used for sealing the entry points in your home so that more rats cannot continue to enter your home. Trapping rats without sealing up the entry points is like swatting flies and leaving your doors and windows open. Not much point, right?
Now some companies will “treat” a rat problem with poison. Unfortunately, this method slowly kills the rats inside your home. A dead rat in your attic is usually pretty easy to remove, but often a rat will die inside your walls or ceiling. Unless you enjoy the smell of a decomposing animal in your home for several weeks, we would advise against the use of rat poison. Our methods of trapping and exclusion are guaranteed to rid your home of rats without the terrible smells!
Snakes are scary, and raccoons can be intimidating. But any wildlife control agency will tell you that rodents are number one when it comes to destroying your home. These little guys were made to chew. Did you know that a rat's teeth will grow up to SIX INCHES in just one year? Could you imagine a rat with fangs? That's the kind of thing you would see in a horror movie!
Unfortunately, the things rats love to chew most are found right inside your home. Wood, duct work, electrical wires, plastic pipes...these are like magnets to a rat!
Did you know that a rat's bite is stronger per inch than the bite of a great white shark? The strength of a rat's bite can be up to 12 tons (24,000 pounds) per square inch. However, the bite of a great white shark is only around 2 tons (4,000 pounds) per square inch.Rats can chew through anything that's not harder than their teeth!
